Hi, I need a new device and I have a few Qs that I should have asked the pacing clinic. Wonder if anyone could help?
Does anyone know whether there is a particular device/model that the NHS tend to implant for sinus node disease/AV block - dual chamber pacing? The clinic mentioned Medtronic / Boston Scientific.
Also I have an existing Sorin device and it is over ten years old. Will the old pocket be too large for the new smaller devices manufactured now and if so will I need any additional surgery on the pocket?
The last Q is about the scar. My GP tells me that they use the old scar but the clinic said otherwise - bit confused. I'd like them to use the old scar. Can this be done?
Thanks in advance for any info.
